Yunoko Lake, Nikko
(4.3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
The so-called "lake of hot water," Yunoko Lake represents the merging place of different waters from the hot springs of the area, and serves as a favorite go-to for a day off in the pristine nature. Enjoy the view of the waterfall the lake creates upon the edge of steep cliffs, which contributes to the overall calming atmosphere. Onsite accommodations provide the option to stay overnight, but you can also spend the day relaxing and having a picnic, or go and try the boat rides. The site also offers a number of bars and restaurants where you can grab a bite while enjoying the view of the surrounding landscape. To visit Yunoko Lake and other attractions in Nikko, use our Nikko itinerary planner.

  • 在湯元旁邊的湖,很容易接近,環山圍繞,湖畔的食堂景觀特別棒,如果是係雪的冬天,坐在窗邊喝咖啡,一定很愜意! 
  • 下過雨後的環湖步道泥濘不好走,這個湖大約一小時左右就可完勝,這裡有許多的觀賞植物;老人家及小孩不建議走靠山邊的那一區,某些區塊有高低起伏,路面不平坦,因為積雪的關係,不建議冬天來湯之湖。
